    Change the Notts CC IT system so it gives all IT techs a large pay rise.
    I wouldn’t fix all the problems in the school as that would put me out of a job.
    EDIT: Thinking about it more might upgrade my server and desktop. In fact why stop there change all hardware so its top of the range and the best of the best.

    I'd stop teachers automatically going into "It's impossible! I'll never understand it... La-la-la-la, I'm not listening" mode... and actually get them to try using computers.

    Oh and while I'm at it, give them a technical vocabulary that means I finally understand what "thingy", "whattsit", "the thing!.. you know!" .. actually mean't.


    ... but as the joke goes..
    "That bridge, two spans or three?" :P

    and what the fk is a duffer!!!?

    teacher - hi, the duffer dosent work.
    me - *sighs* what is a duffer?
    teacher - ya know; the computer
    me - right can you be more persific??
    teacher - the mouse dosent work
    me - so why did you have to say to me the duffer dosent work when you could have said, the mouse on computer 22 in lab 6 is not working! instead of talking to me like an idiot!?

    yes i have said that. think the staff are starting to finally realise that i can be a right ass when they dont talk to me properly. Its no wonder i walk out of work every night in a bad mood.

    Having a technician who does what he's told, when hes told, without going into a strop about it, and who actually gets on with what he's meant to be doing instead of what HE wants to do.

    Mind you, it could lead to some paranoia on the board as they try to figure out who it is lol.
